transportation facilities on the Lake Street branch 
from a, point west of N. Laramie Avenue, in the 
City of Chicago through the Village of Oak Park 
to a point west of N. Harlem Avenue to the right 
of way of Railroad, thus eliminating surface op- 
erations in that area; and 

Whereas, City, County, State, Village and Au- 
thority and the citizens of said municipalities, as 
well as the general public, will benefit greatly from 
the elimination of twenty-two grade crossings in 
said area which will be accomplished by the re- 
moval of the transportation facilities to right of 
way of Railroad and the public also will benefit 
from the better and safer transportation furnished 
by Authority on right of way of R,ailroad; and 

Whereas, definite benefits will also result in the 
movement of traffic on the twenty-two cross streets 
involved in this grade separation project and par- 
ticularly on the more heavily traveled Federal and 
State-aid routes included in said cross streets ; and 

Whereas, City, County, State, Village and Au- 
thority have agreed upon the proration of the

and the mutual benefits to be derived from the joint 
undertaking by the parties to this agreement and 
the mutual promises hereinafter set forth, the 
parties agree as follows :

with the execution of this agreement, will enter 
into a lease for the part of the right of way of 
Railroad to be used by Authority from a point west

point west of N. Harlem Avenue in the Village of 
Forest Park shown on the plat attached hereto 
marked Exhibit A. 

2. City, County, State, Village and Authority 
will cause to be constructed west of N. Laramie

tion between the Lake Street branch of the Rapid 
Transit System of the Authority, together with

other fixed transportation equipment, and the south 
portion of the right of way of Railroad in order to 



permit Authority to conduct transportation on the 
Lake Street branch of the Rapid Transit System 
of the Authority between a point west of N.

right of way retained by Railroad; removal of 
existing Authority facilities west of N. Laramie 
Avenue on W. Lake Street and restoration of the 
parts of the twenty-two north and south streets

Authority, at its expense, will also cause all Rail- 
road stations, platforms and stairways abandoned 
by the Railroad to be removed. Should Railroad not 
be given permission by the Illinois Commerce Com- 
mission to abandon certain stations in the territory

rates in use by such party at the time such work 
is performed. The established rates in use by the 
Railroad are those established by the General Man- 
agers Association. State, City, County and Village

Authority on the project who will, among other 
things, check the charges for labor, materials and 
other items periodically. Authority as the manag- 
ing agency will submit contracts, plans and speci- 
fications to the other parties for approval before 
advertising any work or part of the work for bids.

signals, stations and such other work as directly 
affects its operation will be constructed or caused 
to be constructed by Railroad after submission to 
and approval of the plans and specifications by the 
managing agency. 

During the progress of the work to be per- 
formed by the Railroad under this agreement, Rail- 
road will submit an estimated bill on or about the 
tenth day of each and every month covering the 
estimated cost of labor, materials and overheads 
performed and furnished by Railroad during the 
previous calendar month (including material sviit- 
ably stored at the site of the work and labor 
furnished in connection therewith) and the Au- 
thority will pay ninety per cent (90%) therefor 
within fifteen (15) days after its receipt. This 
estimated bill will be computed as follows : 

1. A percentage of completion for each of the 
projects set forth in Exhibit B will be esti- 
mated at the end of each month by a repre- 
sentative of the engineering department of 
the railroad based upon a physical observa- 
tion of the progress of the work. 

2. The above percentages will be applied to the 
total estimated cost of each project in Ex- 
hibit B to arrive at the periodic billing. 

Upon final completion of all of the work to be 
performed by Railroad in accordance with the 
terms of the agreement, Railroad will submit a 
final bill for the balance due Railroad for each of 
the projects set forth in Exhibit B and the Au- 
thority will pay the full amount thereof within 
sixty (60) days after its receipt. 

Time of payment shall be of the essence of this 
agreement and any sums remaining unpaid after 
the due date as herein provided shall bear interest 
at the highest legal rate, and the Authority in 
further consideration of this agreement v/ill pay 
Railroad all cost and expense (including reason- 
able attorney's fees) incurred by Railroad in col- 
lecting any sums due it under the terms of this 
agreement. Railroad shall keep a record of the 
labor and materials performed and furnished by it 
pursuant to this agreement and Authority shall 
have six months after the receipt of said final bill 
within which to inspect and audit said records and 
within which to notify Railroad in writing of any 
item or items which the Authority deems in- 
eligible for payment under the provisions of this 
agreement and the amount or amounts thereto- 
fore paid by the Authority for said items; and, in 
the event it shall be finally determined that any 
item or amount was not so eligible for payment, 
Railroad shall be liable to pay interest thereon 
from the thirtieth day after the receipt of said 
written notice until said amount or amounts are 
paid in full at the highest legal rate together with 
cost and expense and reasonable attorneys' fees in- 
curred by Authority in collecting said amount or 
amounts. 



6. After the plans and specifications have been 
approved, no deviations may be made therefrom 
without prior approval in writing from each party. 
Each party contracting any work pursuant to this 
agreement shall award such work only to a compe- 
tent contractors experienced in such work, having 
adequate equipment, organizations and finances to 
do the work safely and effectively, and shall re- 
quire the contractor to furnish a satisfactory per- 
formance bond. 

Before beginning any construction work. Au- 
thority shall provide insurance in the form of the 
copy of the policy which is attached hereto as 
Exhibit I, written by an insurance carrier or car- 
riers satisfactory to Railroad, and keep the same 
in force until completion of all the work to be 
performed under this agreement. 

Authority will give Railroad at least 30 days' 
advance notice in writing before beginning any 
work on Railroad property. It is recognized that 
the safety and continuity of operations and traffic 
of Railroad shall be of primary importance and 
shall at all times be protected and safeguarded. 
Whenever, in the opinion of the Chief Engineer of 
Railroad, or his duly authorized representative, any 
work may affect the safety or interfere with the 
operation of Railroad, the methods and procedures 
for construction of such work shall be submitted 
to said Chief Engineer for his prior approval. The 
approval of the Chief Engineer or his duly au- 
thorized representative shall not be considered as 
a release from responsibility or liability for any 
damage which Railroad may suffer or for which 
it may be held liable as a result of such work. 

If deemed necessary by Chief Engineer of Rail- 
road, Railroad may have inspectors, watchmen, 
flagmen, trackmen or other employes to safeguard 
railroad traffic and property during the construc- 
tion period, and Railroad shall be reimbursed by 
Authority for the expense thereof as hereinbefore 
provided in Section 5 hereof. The providing of 
such watchmen or other employes by Railroad shall 
not relieve Authority or its contractors or sub- 
contractors of any liability for injury or damage 
arising in connection with their operations. In the 
event the Chief Engineer of Railroad or his duly 
authorized representative shall deem any of the 
work of the Authority or its contractors or sub- 
contractors hazardous to railroad operations, such 
work shall be suspended until remedial measures 
satisfactory to said Chief Engineer or his duly 
authorized representative are taken. 

7. The total cost of the project shall include the 
cost of the labor, materials, construction and re- 
moval set forth in the preceding paragraphs .3 and 
4. The estimated total cost of the project is shown 
on the tabulation hereto attached, marked Exhibit

The City Clerk informed the City Council that all

Council on April 9, 1958 and which were required by 
statute to be published in book or pamphlet form or 
in one or more newspapers, were published in pam-

phlet copies were delivered to the City Clerk on April

Partial State Approval of Ordinance Including Routes 

of Comprehensive Superhighway System 

in Arterial Highway System. 

Also the following communication from Wm. M. 
Dutelle, Engineer of Local Roads and Streets, Depart- 
ment of Public Works and Buildings, State of Illinois, 
addressed to the City Clerk under date of April 9, 
1958: 

"Dear Sir — This acknowledges receipt of one 
copy each of a resolution and an ordinance passed 
by the City Council of Chicago at its meeting of 
September 19, 1957. 

"The resolution amends previous resolutions 
adopted by the City Council on February 21, 1940, 
April 23, 1945, and June 25, 1947, by revising the 
General Plan of the Comprehensive Superhighway 
System and describing the locations of specific 
routes. We feel no formal action is required on this 
resolution. 

"The ordinance amends ordinances adopted on 
June 13, 1934, March 20, 1940, April 23, 1945, and 
June 25, 1947 by defining the inclusion in the City's 
arterial street system of the various routes of the 
Comprehensive Superhighway System as set forth 
in the revised general plan and described in the 
foregoing resolution. 

"We are approving this ordinance today only 
insofar as it pertains to the addition to the arterial 
street system of the following three locations: (1) 
the Cross Town Route, (2) the North Route north 
of Hollywood Avenue, and (3) the ramp connection 
from the Southwest Route to a point in the vicinity 
of Cullerton Avenue. 

"Further we are disapproving the addition to the 
arterial street system of the remainder of the Com- 
prehensive Superhighway System routes as defined 
in this ordinance, and are also at this time with- 
drawing all previous approval of the Comprehen- 
sive Routes as arterial streets. 

"Our action is based on our policy to avoid as 
much as possible the coincidental duplication of the 
various highway and street systems, with a result- 
ing simplification, by having the highest system 
designation take precedence. With the exception of 
the above approved three locations, the remainder 
of the Comprehensive System carries official Fed- 
eral, State, or County designations, precluding any 
necessity for their arterial designation. 

"Our district office has discussed this matter with 
Mr. Van Gorp's office, and reports no objection to 
our policy."

Referred — Proposed Ordinance to Authorize Exe- 
cution OF Lease Agreement with U.S. Govern- 
ment FOR Military Operations at O'Hare 
Field, Chicago International Airport ; Etc. 

The City Clerk presented the following communica- 
tion from Honorable John C. Melaniphy, Corporation 
Counsel, addressed to the City Council under date of 
April 17, 1958, which was, together with the proposed 
ordinance transmitted therewith. Referred to the 
Committee on Finance : 

"Gentlemen — When the United States Govern- 
ment conveyed by quitclaim deed approximately 
1070 acres of Old Orchard Airport, now comprising 
part of O'Hare Field, Chicago International Airport, 
by deed dated March 21, 1946 and recorded in the 
Office of the Recorder of Deeds of Cook County, 
Illinois on March 22, 1946 as Document No. 13747964 
in Book No. 40999 at page 58 to the City of Chi- 
cago, there were certain reservations made by the 
Government. The most important ones insofar as 
the development of O'Hare Field, Chicago Interna- 
tional Airport, is involved were three : 

1. The reservation in favor of the Govern- 
ment for fissionable materials. 

2. The reservation designated "B(l)" provid- 
ing that the Government shall have the free use 
of the Airport for military purposes of not less 
than 25 per cent of the capacity thereof, 

3. The reservation designated "B(2)" con- 
tained in said deed giving the Government, dur- 
ing the existence of any emergency declared by 
the President or the Congress, the right without 
charge to take the unrestricted possession, con- 
trol and use of all of the Airport facilities. 

In considering the authorization and marketing 
of a revenue bond issue for the purpose of the 
further development of O'Hare Field, Chicago Inter- 
national Airport, it became evident that it would 
be necessary to obtain the release of the reserva- 
tions set forth above. 

On March 12, 1957 the Corporation Counsel 
advised the Government of our position and opened 
negotiations with the Administrator of Civil Aero- 
nautics and the Air Force intending to accomplish 
this purpose. Without going into detail, we beg 
to advise: 

1. In June, 1957, the Corporation Counsel 
prepared a Bill to be introduced in the House of 
Representatives and the United States Senate, 
HR 8005, for the purpose of authorizing the 
Administrator of General Services to convey by 
quitclaim deed to the City of Chicago the Gov- 
ernment's interest in and to fissionable materials 
which may or may not be found at O'Hare Field. 
This Bill successfully passed the House of Repre- 
sentatives and the United States Senate and was 
signed by the President of the United States. 
Thereafter, on November 4, 1957, the United 
States of America conveyed by quitclaim deed 
to the City of Chicago all of its right, title and 



7556 



JOURNAL— CITY COUNCIL— CHICAGO 



April 17, 1958 



interest in and to fissionable materials in the 
property previously conveyed by the Government 
to the City of Chicago, which deed has been 
recorded in the Office of the Recorder of Deeds 
as Document No. 17074775 in Book No. 55713 at 
page 293. 

2. After many conferences extending over the 
period of March, 1957 to April 12, 1958, the 
Corporation Counsel was successful in convinc- 
ing the Government that the reservations desig- 
nated "B(l)" and "B(2)", referred to above, 
should be released, and in connection therewith, 
a lease be given to the Government which would 
define an area immediately west of the Govern- 
ment reservation for exclusive use as an apron 
and providing accessibility to the runways from 
its alert hangar, and defining specifically the 
number of free military operations in a period 
of 24 hours, and requiring the Government to 
pay the same rates as charged the commercial 
airlines for any operations in excess thereof. 

It is common knowledge that the Government is 
proceeding to construct a military airport at Kan- 
sasville, Wisconsin, and, within a short space of 
time, the military activity at O'Hare Field should 
be moved to Kansasville. We were advised that the 
Government requires certain standards as to time 
and provisions of any leases entered into by the Air 
Force with municipalities, and these terms and pro- 
visions are contained in the lease which we trans- 
mit herewith. 

The final terms of this lease, as contained herein, 
have been the subject of many conferences between 
the Corporation Counsel, the representatives and 
attorneys for the airlines, the representatives and 
attorneys for the Banker's group, who are advising 
as to the Revenue Bond Issue, and we are all in 
accord that the attached lease is equitable and fair, 
that its provisions will not interfere with the financ- 
ing of the enlargement of O'Hare Field and the 
operations of that field as a commercial airport. 

We respectfully request that you give this docu- 
ment your early consideration." 

Alderman Bohling stated that Mr. John C. Mela- 
niphy. Corporation Counsel, rendered a great service 
to the City in his negotiating of agreements bene- 
ficial to the City as mentioned in the foregoing com- 
munication, which would lead to greater development 
at O'Hare Field. 

At the suggestion of Honorable Richard J. Daley, 
Mayor, Mr. Melaniphy addressed the Council, explain- 
ing the major changes which would result in the 
amended agreement, as well as the other high points 
concerning the proposed developments at O'Hare 
Field. 

The Mayor stated that Mr. George DeMent, Com- 
missioner of Public Works, also engaged in the many 
conferences on the subject matter.

Report of Committee Chairman as to Status of Certain Matters Pending in Committee. 



Alderman Sain, as Chairman of the Committee on 
Committees and Rules, submitted the following report 
to the City Council : 

Chicago, April 17, 1958. 

To the President and Members of the City Council : 

In response to the request, under the provisions 
of Council Rule 45, made by Alderman Despres at 
the meeting of the City Council held on Wednesday, 
April 9, 1958, concerning proceedings had in the 
Committee on Committees and Rules pertaining to 
redistricting matters before the Committee, and in 
particular : 

A) Resolution, referred October 10, 1957 (in- 
troduced by Alderman Despres), to direct the 
Committee on Committees and Rules to report a 
proposed redistricting ordinance to the City 
Council within 30 days; and 

B) Proposed ordinance, referred December 5, 
1957 (introduced by the City Clerk at the re- 
quest of the Independent Voters of Illinois), to 
redistrict the wards of the City of Chicago, 



I respectfully report as follows: 

Your committee has worked diligently in study- 
ing population trends and shifts in Chicago and has 
compiled what it considers the most reliable figures 
on Chicago population. These studies are being 
continued. 

The committee has held countless conferences on 
this subject and the views and recommendations of 
all members of the City Council have been sought 
and given consideration. 

The use of the 1950 Federal Census, in view of 
the evident changes in population within the City 
of Chicago in the interim, would not at this time 
provide for wards with a population nearly equal 
as practicable as provided by the Statutes of the 
State of Illinois. The statutes contemplate that the 
exercise of the power of redistricting be reason- 
able and equitable and the 1950 Census is not now 
an accurate guide under the circumstances. 

It is the consensus of some of the members of the 
committee that at this late date no ordinance 
should be submitted prior to the time that the 1960 
Federal Census figures are made available. 

(Signed) Harry L. Sain.

Presented by 
ALDERMAN CILELLA (36th Ward) : 

U. S. Congress Memorialized to Enact Pending Bill to 

Prevent Shipment of Switchblade Knives through 

Interstate Commerce and U. S. Mail. 

A proposed resolution reading as follows: 

Whereas, On June 20, 1956 this Honorable body, 
at the request of our Mayor, Richard J. Daley, 
passed an amendment to Section 193-30 of the 
Municipal Code of Chicago, relating to the sale and 
possession of knives known as "switchblades" and, 
as to persons 18 years or under, prohibiting the 
sale to, and the carrying of, any knife two inches 
or longer concealed upon his person; and 

Whereas, Many states have banned the sale and 
use of switchblades within their borders, but have 
no way of preventing the shipment of such knives 
into their states through interstate commerce or 
the mails; and 

Whereas, Studies of the Chicago Youth Commis- 
sion reveal that many young boys read advertise- 
ments for switchblade knives in comic books, and 



April 24, 1958 



NEW BUSINESS PRESENTED BY ALDERMEN 



7613 



can send for them and receive them through the 
mails; and 

Whereas, These studies of the Chicago Youth 
Commission further reveal that there is a definite 
relationship between the rise of juvenile delin- 
quency, and the possession and use by our young 
people of the deadly quality of this weapon known 
as the switchblade knife; and 

Whereas, There is now pending in the Congress 
of the United States a bill, introduced by Congress- 
man Sidney R. Yates, which would ban the ship- 
ment of switchblade knives through interstate 
commerce and through the mails; and 

Whereas, The Uniform Crime Report just re- 
leased by our Director of the Federal Bureau of 
Investigation, J. Edgar Hoover, reports a 9.1% 
increase in major crimes over the nation in 1957, 
as compared to 1956, and further these figures 
show that youth under 18 accounted for 47.2% of 
these total major crimes; and 

Whereas^ The Chicago Youth Commission and 
its Advisory Board feel that it would be in the best 
interest of the youth of our country and Chicago 
to ban the shipment of switchblade knives in inter- 
state commerce and through the mails, and further 
that it would help in the enforcement of Chicago's 
ordinance introduced by Mayor Richard J. Daley 
in the best interest of the youth of Chicago; 

Now, Therefore Be It Resolved, That the City 
Council of the City of Chicago hereby memorialize 
the Senators and Representatives of the Congress 
of the United States to enact such proposal into 
law with all possible expediency; and 

Be It Further Resolved. That this resolution be 
spread of record upon the Journal of the Pro- 
ceedings of the City Council, and that copies of

constructive forces which strengthen family life 
and encourage citizen participation in our democ-

in the gutters adjoining the roadway face of the 
curbing shall be nine (9) inches below the top of 
said curbing. The slope of the gutters adjoining 
the roadway face of said curbing shall be uniform 
from the summits to the catchbasin inlets. 

A transverse section of the surface of the finished 
pavement and gutters shall be an arc of a circle 
passing through the said gutter elevations and the 
elevation of the center of said finished roadway at 
every part of the roadway of each of said specified 
street (s) between the points herein described. 

In all intersecting alley (s) herein specified at the 
street line(s) of said specified street (s) the surface 
of the finished pavement adjoining the curbing shall 
be even with the top of the curbing, and the surface 
of the finished pavement at the center of the road- 
way (s) of said alley (s) shall be three (3) inches 
below the top of the curbing; and a transverse 
section of the surface of the finished pavement at 
the street line(s) of said specified street (s) shall 
be an arc of a circle passing through the surface of 
the pavement adjoining said curbing and the sur- 
face of the pavement adjoining said curbing and the 
surface of the pavement at the center of said 
finished roadway (s). The surface of the said pave- 
ment thence shall slope gradually to meet the sur- 
face of the finished pavement at the curb lines of 
said specified street (s). 

On the sub-grade as formed and compacted shall 
be spread an insulation course of limestone screen- 
ings. Said insulation course shall be one (1) inch in 
thickness and shall extend across the full width of 
the roadbed. 

On the insulation course as formed and com- 
pacted shall be spread a foundation course consist- 
ing of a layer of crushed limestone of the best 
quality, broken so as to pass through a ring of 
four (4) inches internal diameter and held on a 
ring of two ( 2 ) inches internal diameter. The stone 
as spread shall be well graded as to sizes. It shall be 
evenly distributed so as to leave no pockets filled 
with the small size stone. This layer shall be 
thoroughly rolled with a self propelled three-wheel 
roller, weighing not less than ten (10) tons. The 
rolling shall begin at the edge of the pavement and 
the roller shall move parallel with the center line 
of the roadway. The roller shall progress gradually 
towards the center of the roadway, uniformly lap- 
ping each preceding track, covering the entire sur- 
face with the rear wheels and continuing until the 
stone does not creep or move ahead of the roller. 
After the crushed limestone has been thoroughly 
rolled and keyed, limestone screenings shall be 
applied gradually over the surface and the rolling 
continued until sufficient screening have been ap- 
plied to completely fill the interstices. 

The screenings shall be swept in with hand brooms 
to properly fill the voids. The spreading and rolling 
shall continue until no more screenings will go in 
dry. No excess of screenings shall be used before 
applying water. Immediately after the voids have 
been filled with screenings, the macadam shall be 
sprinkled until saturated, the sprinkler being fol- 
lowed by a roller. More screenings shall be added 
if necessary. The sprinkling, sweeping and rolling 
shall continue until a grout shall be formed of the 
screenings and water that will fill all voids, and 
form a wave of grout before the wheels of the 
roller. The quantity of screenings and water neces- 
sary to fill the voids shall be determined by the 
engineer and shall be sufl^cient to produce a rough, 
granular surface. The rolling, at all times, shall 
begin at the sides, and then progress toward the 



center, throughly covering the entire surface with 
the rear wheels. When compacted, this layer shall 
measure not less than five (5) inches in thickness. 

Upon the finished waterbound macadam base 
there shall be uniformly applied by an approved 
type of spreader box, two (2) inch stone to a depth 
providing a total base course thickness of three 
(3) inches after final compaction. After shaping to 
grade and rolling with a ten (10) ton roller three 
quarter ( ^ ) inch stone chips shall be broadcast 
and broomed into the surface voids at the rate of 
fifteen (15) pounds per square yard. Liquid asphalt 
at a temperature of 140° F. shall be uniformly 
applied by a pressure distributor at a rate of one 
and one-half (IMi) gallons per square yard. Stone 
chips shall again be broadcast and broomed uni- 
formly over the surface at the rate of fifteen (15) 
pounds per square yard. Liquid asphalt shall be 
uniformly applied by a pressure distributor at the 
rate of one-half ( 1/2 ) gallon per square yard. Stone 
chips shall be broadcast again at the rate of ten 
(10) pounds per square yard. The surface shall 
then be thoroughly rolled. The asphalt shall con- 
form to the State Specifications for Emulsified 
Asphalt R.S.I and R.S.2 Page 640 State of Illinois 
Standard Specifications for Road and Bridge Con- 
struction adopted January 2, 1952. 

On the said foundation course shall be placed an 
asphaltic concrete surface course two (2) inches 
in thickness consisting of an asphaltic concrete 
mixture conforming to the standard requirements 
of the Illinois State Division of Highways for Type 
I-II Asphaltic Concrete adopted January 2, 1952, 
as follows: the asphaltic mix shall consist of a 
mineral aggregate bonded with an asphaltic cement. 
The mineral aggregate shall consist of the best 
quality of crushed gravel or crushed stone in sizes 
graduated in accordance with the following table, 
viz: 

Asphaltic Concrete Surface Courses, Fine 
Dense-Graded Aggregate Type 

Passing 1/2 inch sieve 95-100% 

Passing 1/2 inch, retained on No. 45-65% 

4 sieve 25-50% 

Passing No. 4, retained on 25-40% 

No. 10 sieve 10-30% 

Passing No. 10, retained on No. 

40 sieve 5-18% 

Passing No. 40, retained on No. 

50 sieve 7-22% 

Passing No. 80, retained on No. 

200 sieve 5-13% 

Passing No. 200 sieve 4- 8% 

Bitumen 5- 7% 

(Table 45.11 p. 247 State Specifications.) 

The asphaltic cement shall conform with the 
standard requirements of the Illinois State Division 
of Highways for Grade P.A.6, Paving Asphalt, 
adopted January 2, 1952. It shall have a flash point 
(Cleveland open cup) 500 plus Fahrenheit. It shall 
have penetration at seventy-seven (77) degrees 
Fahrenheit of seventy-five (75) to eight-five (85), 
and at least ninety-nine and five-tenths (99.5) per 
cent of the bitumen shall be soluble in carbon 
disulphide. 

When fifty (50) grams of said paving asphalt is 
heated in an uncovered tin box five and one-half 
(51/2) centimeters in diameter and three and one- 
half (31/2) centimeters in depth, and is held at a 
temperature of three hundred twenty-five (325) 
degrees Fahrenheit for five (5) hours, then it shall

have lost not over two (2) per cent by weight and 
the penetration of the residue thus obtained shall 
not be less than seventy (70) per cent of the pene- 
tration before such heating, said penetration being 
determined as herein prescribed. Said paving as- 
phalt shall have a ductility of not less than one 
hundred (100) centimeters being determined by 
elongating a briquette Dow form of said paving 
asphalt at uniform rate of five (5) centimeters per 
minute at a temperature of seventy-seven (77) 
degrees fahrenheit. 

The paving asphalt and mineral aggregate shall 
be mixed when heated between three hundred (300) 
and three hundred fifty (350) degrees fahrenheit in 
an approved mixer to produce a homogeneous mix- 
ture in which all particles of aggregate are coated 
uniformly. The heated mixture shall be delivered to 
the pavement in trucks with approved clean tight 
dump bodies. The temperature when delivered at 
the street shall be between two hundred fifty (250) 
and three hundred fifty (350) degrees fahrenheit. 
Upon arrival the asphaltic mixture shall be spread 
upon the prepared base at a uniform depth and 
consistency so that the thickness when compacted 
as herein described will be two (2) inches. Immedi- 
ately after the asphalt surface course shall be 
spread it shall be compacted thoroughly and uni- 
formly with a three (3) wheel roller or a tandem 
roller. The asphalt paving mix shall be dumped 
first upon approved steel dump pans outside of the 
area on which it is to be spread. Immediately there- 
after it shall be distributed into place with shovels 
and spread with rakes in layers of uniform density 
and correct depth, unless a spreading machine is 
used. If a spreading machine is used it shall be of 
a type approved by the Board of Local Improve- 
ments. Immediately after the surface course mix- 
ture is placed it shall be compacted thoroughly and 
uniformly with a three-wheel roller or a tandem 
roller. One (1) or more three-wheel rollers and one 
(1) or more tandem rollers will be required. The 
actual number of such rollers to be determined by 
the Engineer in accordance with the progress of the 
work. If the production of the asphalt plant deliv- 
ered to the pavement exceeds seventy-five ( 75 ) tons 
per hour additional rollers shall be furnished as 
directed by said Engineer. After a final rolling the 
asphalt surface course shall at all points have a 
density of not less than ninety-five (95) per cent of 
the maximum possible density of a voidless pave- 
ment composed of the same materials in like pro- 
portions. 

Concrete crosswalks shall be built at intersec- 
tions only. Concrete crosswalks shall be built ac- 
cording to the Standard City Code of the City of 
Chicago. 

The concrete shall conform to Class X Concrete 
(as described in this ordinance for curbs and 
gutters). 

All existing catchbasins which are to be aban- 
doned are located at the intersections of streets. 
Where existing catchbasins are to be abandoned the 
outlet pipe connection from the catchbasin to the 
sewer shall be plugged and properly sealed and the 
corbel courses broken down and the catchbasin 
cleaned and filled with suitable material. 

Pavement removal and restoration where neces- 
sary. 

Additional masonry where necessary. 

Said work is to be done in a workmanlike manner 
under the superintendence of the Board of Local 
Improvements of the said City of Chicago.
